Please use our Connecticut Prostar dealer quote tool below to get prices from several different vendors in your local Connecticut market.
From small scale businesses through large businesses, the backbone of a business phone system is their PBX, or "Private Branch Exchange." From the rudimentary days of the old switchboard systems, to the vast, feature rich business phone systems of today - it's more than just a means of communication - the PBX is how things get done. Let's have a look at what it takes to incorporate the effectiveness of one of those into your everyday work-flow.
Make sure you ask yourself some questions: What kind of internet connectivity does your PBX will need? Would you benefit more from having it on site, or having a 3rd party host it? What sort of infrastructure do you have in place already, plus can you use it within the new system?
Addressing many of these questions can be crucial to getting the most out of the system. To assist you find those answers, here's some food for thought...
Employee salaries are the price of doing business. However, paying someone just to answer phones, or taking time away from an otherwise skilled employee to perform this menial task is really a waste of funds. The same tasks performed by receptionist on the phone can be taken care of by many of the current PBX systems. At the most basic level, these "Auto Attendant" features includes options such as allowing the caller to navigate a (potentially huge) menu system, reach specific extensions or access information recordings. Maybe someday we'll even have a PBX that will brew a pot of coffee...
Having your phone system perform automated tasks can save you time and money. Auto-dialing provides a means for the system to place calls (and more) all on it's own. At the most basic level, many of us associate PBX auto-dialing with robo-calls, or telemarketing. However, the systems can do much more than that, especially when blended with modern technology. For example, sending text messages to cell phones automated for instant and informative personal, departmental, or company-wide alerts and notices. Voicemail from important numbers can be forwarded instantly, and many packages even provide text to speech for reading messages to the recipient, such as crucial e-mails.
Modern software has seen a flood of high quality open-source development, and the PBX market is no exception. The "Asterisk" project is a suite of high powered, feature rich software PBX tools, very popular with many businesses. The software runs on a standard PC, along with specialized interface cards to connect you to the outside phone system (including everything from standard phone lines, through ISDN or T1 lines.) Features are rich, including robo-dialing, auto-operator menu systems, voicemail, voice over IP, and much more.
Of course this doesn't come without downsides. You'll either need to administer all of this yourself, or hire an expert to setup and administer the system for you. The software can be difficult to install and configure without experience, requiring a good deal of time to familiarize yourself with it.
Making sure your business's telephone system is up to snuff is a crucial factor in ensuring your business's ability to communicate and survive. Delving into the multitude of features provided by today's PBX systems is exciting and can bring huge rewards in terms of increasing your business's capabilities, productivity, and overall ability to communicate, whether it be with customers, or inter-office communications.
